    I have a 87 accd lx thats in really good condition and i was wondering if i would be able to swap an h22 in and if possible what kind of work am i looking at to get it in...i've looked all over the web for any type of info on this but couldn't find anything not even performance parts for my car. I have the stock motor in there now which is a a20a1(carb) any help at all would be much appreciated. thanks

    hey, I met some guy here in wichita who put an h22 in 87 lx so to let you know it is possible to do that swap. the only thing is, there's somewhat a lot of money involved and alot of converting shit. dont sell the car!!!!!!!! :angry:

    Yeah, the H22 is possible just LOTS OF CUSTOMIZING. Plus you have a carb....not worth it (Believe me, I know....same car). Get a weber. Cheaper and easier to install.

    The B18C1 has been done. Still, hard as hell to install.

    http://www.3geez.com/: 86-89 Accords, tells ya anything you need to know.

    And don't sell it! Those pop-up headlights are the best!

    You can swap a first gen b16a1 into it. There is going to be a lot of work to convert from carb to fuel injected though.

    Talk to the guys on 3geez they have a lot of info on that site and some pretty knowledgeable and well experienced members. I would like to swap a b16a1 into my 88 LX as well...throw on a Jackson Racing SC and have the ultimate sleeper. ;)

    Hey james105! If you want to keep it carbed, you can try the JDM 3rd gen Accord engine. It's the B18A (dual carbed with DOHC) rated @ 130hp. It's EXTREMELY HARD to find though. Most people on 3geez have done the JDM 3rd gen Accord B20A though (injected DOHC) rated @ 160hp and 140tq. Again, another hard one to find.

    The carb people usually seem to do DCOE webbers.

    Have you decided on FI or carb?
